Chef Jose taught me how to make an appetizer dish of stuffed dates wrapped in bacon. He clearly and slowly demonstrated how to properly cut the date and remove the pit. He then stuffed it with goat cheese. He used thick cut bacon to wrap around the stuffed date and baked them off. Chef Jose has an extremely friendly demeanor which made me feel so welcome.
Brazilian-born Chef Jose is a master of Spanish cuisine. He once prepared paella for a gathering of 400 guests! But Chef Jose is more than a private chef—he is also a caterer and culinary teacher with a distinct passion for delicious Spanish dishes. He strives to create stellar culinary experiences for every guest, student and aspiring chef who he serves or teaches. Chef Jose’s motto: “Life is too short to eat badly.”
